Conservation Commission \ Tree Board

The Narragansett Conservation Commission is a Town advisory body providing recommendations in the promotion and conservation of natural resources, protection of watershed resources, and preservation of natural aesthetic areas. The Conservation Commission oversees the Town of Narragansett's Adopt-A-Spot Program and has provided significant support in efforts to establish a Town-wide recycling program. The Conservation Commission also serves as the Tree Board.

Tree Planting Program


The project purpose is to plant shade trees on private property where they have the greatest chance for survival and long-term contribution to the community. The project requires that all trees must be planted within 25 feet of the public right-of-way (i.e. behind street or sidewalk, etc.,).  See below links for more information and eligibility.
